During the trip down, I asked twice: "Is that a Glock?"
My reply is: "No, it is a Springfield XD."
On the way home, I got the same question again...
After my reply, the person said: "My department carries Glocks, but that a is nice looking piece of equipment."
And that was it! Nothing else was said about it. At least some department around Roanoke is aware there is no law against OC.
On the other hand... Why does everyone think it is a Glock? Is Glock what everything thinks of when they see a black semi-automatic?
But seriously, its because a large number of police agencies carry Glocks. They are very common.
